Oni Press has dropped a preview of the forthcoming Biker Mice From Mars #1. Part of the Nacelle Company‘s ongoing mission to revive classic IP of yesteryear. The three issue miniseries written by Melissa Flores with art by Francis Portela will act as a prequel to the forthcoming animated return of the 1990s animated series. The first issue drops July 17, retailing for $4.99.

The plot summary, according to Oni Press release:

“Best friends Throttle, Modo, and Vinnie were just three anthropomorphic, motorcycle-riding mice who called Mars home . . . and were always bad to the bone. But when the ruthless Plutarkian races stage a mass invasion to strip their planet of its precious resources, their antiauthoritarian streak is going to turn into a full-blown insurgency. Only the Biker Mice from Mars can prevent the mass destruction of Earth’s nearest neighbor . . . and the freedom of our entire solar system may just hang in the balance.

“Leading into the upcoming animated series by executive producers Brian Volk-Weiss, Cisco Henson, Matt Kravitsky, Michael Goodman, Gavin Hignight and Matt Lawton from Nacelle Company, Maximum Effort’s Ryan Reynolds, George Dewey, Kevin Hill and Ashley Fox, as well as Fubo’s David Gandler and Pamela Duckworth, the summer’s most anticipated return pushes the action into the red as a never-before-told chapter of Biker Mice history stands revealed!”

Biker Mice From Mars was a popular kids animated TV show created by Rick Ungar which ran from 1993 to 1996. Ungar was a key name as a producer in the animation industry, with credits in a number of Marvel animations of the 1990s. The Nacelle Company’s revival is the second shot at bringing the rad rodents back to screens, following a 2006 continuation that lasted one season.
